Police from England released footage of a high-speed car chase. Police cars chased a car with two drug dealers. The cars reached speeds of over 120 mph (193 kph).

The drug dealers threw £230,000 worth of heroine out of the car. The chase lasted almost half an hour. Police then boxed in the car and made it stop.

Police later found the drugs on the motorway. They arrested two men, and both men are going to prison. One will go for 15 months and the other one will go for 5 years.

Difficult words: chase (act of trying to catch somebody), heroine (a type of drug), box in (surround).
